Georgia’s on My Mind

The upcoming Senate runoff is greatly concerning for its big implications.

For 25 years my family lived in Georgia. Granted, we were barely Georgians, living on the TN/GA state line. While we worked in Chattanooga, Georgia was our home. Eighteen months ago, after we retired (from a paycheck), we sold our home, downsized, and moved to Chattanooga.

Who knew in less than two years that the eyes of the nation would be on Georgia? Who knew a runoff race for TWO Senate seats at the same time could hold the future of our country? I know, some will say that’s hyperbole. They want us to believe that so we won’t bother to show up. And therein lies our dilemma.

While I can no longer vote in Georgia legally (that didn’t seem important during the presidential election, but I digress), I can encourage all my friends who do live there to turn out for the runoff on January 5. I can support both candidates with my prayers and financial support. We don’t have the option to do “nothing.”

Senators Kelly Loeffler and David Purdue are not perfect. There are no perfect candidates because there are no perfect people. But these two are conservative voices that have supported life over unlimited abortion. They support both First and Second Amendment rights, much to the dismay of the Left. The two Democrat candidates are far left of Georgia values and American values. To not show up and vote will allow leftists to determine the agenda to the point where we may not recognize this country if they’re not stopped.

It’s funny how candidates like Jon Ossoff and Raphael Warnock are tight-lipped about issues they proudly stood behind during their earlier campaigns. Now they’re hoping the media will bury their comments so they can hide their radical views. Both are heartily endorsed by Governor Stacey Abrams (okay, she’s not really the governor; just don’t tell her she lost two years ago). That should make every Patriot take notice.

New York Democrat Chuck Schumer said, “Now we take Georgia, and then we change the world.” Okay, he meant to say “change the country,” but never doubt the Left’s ambitions. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez said if they could win both seats in Georgia, they would no longer have to “negotiate” with Republicans. If that doesn’t cause your blood to turn cold, you don’t realize how radical the Left’s agenda really is.

That agenda includes the Green New Deal, gun control, and a pathway to citizenship for illegals already here (20 million plus?), which will create a rush on the border by millions more illegals. Leftists plan to pack the Supreme Court, give Puerto Rico and Washington, DC, statehood (thus adding four more leftist senators), and change election laws to allow ballots counted without identification needed. I know, I’m preaching to the choir here.

The Left has been telling us for four years that the Russians hacked the 2016 election to elect Donald Trump. Now it wants us to believe 2020 was the most honest and secure election EVER! I know, there are hundreds of eyewitnesses who have filed sworn affidavits under the penalty of perjury (unlike the accusers against Trump, who were all anonymous), but the media says “nothing to see here.” Georgia is the red line in the sand.

Pray, give, and if you live in Georgia, vote! Our future depends on it.

Something to pray about?
